It’s a Good Thing I Don’t Live
in the Country with the ‘Best Medical Care’

Original Article

Most of the Democrat candidates pushing Medicare for all cite Canada’s system as the envy in the entire world. Bernie Sanders has been touting Canada’s health care system as far superior than anything here in the United States. At the same time there have been several articles debunking that reputation by patients needing immediate care. I must disagree with all the 2020 Democrat candidates who are proposing the single payer socialist health system. I believe we have the best system in the world and my recent health care proves it. If I lived in Canada, I’d be dead.

My wife would be dead if we still lived in Canada. My niece walks with a limp because it took a week to see a orthopedic surgeon after being run over by a horse.

So happy to hear that everything turned out well for Ms. Colon. You are never more appreciative of our health care system as when you have the opportunity to use it. There are flaws but, but it is the best care in the world. Ignorant politicians would destroy it for one vote. They are just evil. They spout all these promises that we can’t possibly afford without shame. It really is pathetic what these craven politicians will say and do to gain power. There is no “too low” for them.

The single most important feature of Medicare for All is that it will actually be Medicare for all except politicians. I'm a member of the Live With What You Pass Party.

"I'd be dead" That's the whole point of a single payer socialist health care system. The elderly and any opposition are declined healthcare as determined by so called death panels. If you are too fat, a smoker, a Republican or conservative your healthcare wait will be terminal. FTA "Medicare for all will eliminate private insurance and these moronic politicians also want to give illegal immigrants, who have no right being here to begin with, all the same benefits." My guess is that those " moronic politicians" in Congress would not be included in the single payer plan just like under obamacare so there would still be private insurance but only for the Socialist elites in Congress and the ultra rich. I'm also on Medicare and had all the exact same tests the writer had but my blockage in the same artery was only 30%. I don't want what Canada has or what Cuba has and certainly not what that idiot Sanders wants! Pray for the reelection of President Trump!

For some reason, I don't think you or I would find ourselves rubbing shoulders with some lying politician in the local health clinic. In RealWorld, if they get their way, I'll sit and wait while they are treated as Royalty in the best hospitals in the land. That's known as a no brainer.

Without a doubt, we have the best medical care in the US. No waits, state of the art equipment, good coverage through private insurance. If we had a Canadian-style system, rich people would pay their own way to avoid waits or, if prohibited, go to another country for treatment where it was allowed. And I don’t see politicians giving up their Cadillac plans.

Define "free." In many other countries, "free health care" is not what you think. When I lived in Tokyo, I lost a friend because she was having a heart attack and the ambulance couldn't find a hospital that would accept patients who weren't Japanese. The reason: the patient "probably" couldn't speak Japanese. Never mind that in her condition, she couldn't speak at all. When my son lived in the UK, he needed a simple endoscopy. The first available appointment for that was in... 8 months. But his company provided "private insurance" so he could have it the next day. If single payer is passed here---those who can afford it will find a way to purchase "private insurance" but the government will have weaseled itself in to making our medical decisions for us. In Japan, the patient's FAMILY is required to bring the food and feed the patient. They also are in charge of keeping the room clean, including the bathroom and the floors. If an infection develops, it's YOUR fault, not the hospitals'. In Dusseldorf, the krankenhauses are overflowing with patients. The corridors are communal "rooms" but in reality are just like tent cities for the homeless. A portapot is wheeled around if someone needs it and you're supposed to hop off your gurney and do your thing in front of everyone. Many patients spend their entire hospital stay in Gurneyville. All of the politicians out there calling for "free health care" HAVE TO know the tradeoffs. Funny, isn't it, that nobody's discussing what we'd have to give up in exchange for "free health care." How do we know what to ask about--- if we don't know about it at all?

FTA: "...a 100% blockage of the lad artery (known as the widowmaker) ..." As my Cardiologist told me (paraphrasing), "They're all 'widowmakers.'" Amazingly, the tiniest capillary on the heart can grow into a major artery, and when the one on the back of my heart was totally blocked two more arteries formed to take over that duty. The body can heal itself, as long as we take it easy and not push it too hard. All he had to do was prescribe blood thinners for a few months, and all was back to normal. Thank God I reacted to the first sign of angina (something I'd never felt before) and went immediately to the Cardiologist. If you ever feel something you've never felt before, see a Doctor... preferably a specialist... or two. Yes, indeed, prayers for Alicia.

A while back I was in a business venture with two other people, one of whom was Canadian. He used to brag that his health care was free and how much insurance cost us U.S. folks. But when it came time to split the proceeds from the sale of the venture, he argued that he should get a substantially larger cut than 1/3 because his taxes were much higher in Canada (we said no, of course). Then he got sick. Cancer. After waiting a couple of months in line for x-rays, then more time to get the x-rays analyzed, he found he had a tumor the size of a football in his abdomen. But he would have to wait more months to meet with a surgeon, who would develop a plan of treatment and maybe schedule an operating room. Result was it would take at least 6 months before any surgery would happen, and longer waits after that for chemo and/or radiation. Not willing to settle for that (and having some money) he went to M.D. Anderson in Houston. From the time he was first examined in Houston to the time surgery was performed was TWO DAYS. And plans for chemo and radiation were set shortly after - and carried out in Houston. After that, he was a true believer in our medical system. He says that the Canadian medical system is great - until you get sick.

1. Working the beads for AC. 2. Remember when she whose name we dare not speak here called out Obamacare on the campaign trail for death panels? 3. Remember when opposition to national health by regular voters lead to the formation of the tea party? And how the tea party gave majorities in the House and Senate to Paul Ryan and Mitch Mc Connell? 4. Remember how republicans nominated the leading proponent of single payer government managed , a lousy candidate overall, to run against Obama and Obamacare? 5. Remember how Republican senators declined opportunities to repeal and replace Obamacare because planned Parenthood and the insurance industry told them not to? The National Republican Party is too busy opposing Trump and running errands for all the Wall Street profiteers in the health care industry to generate pro patient free market health care system that looks like health care before insurance companies took over. Shame on them all.

Politicians who would control our healthcare would, by definition, control our very lives. Many of them are chomping at the bit to do it because it would mean the absolute power that many of them crave. Congress was designed by our forefathers as a system of representation. The theory was that one person from a given area was to be the composite voice and choice-maker for all of his constituents. Consider what Congress does today for you and the trend of their actions, which are completely self-centered, selfish and do not consider you at all outside of the election period. They pay themselves an outrageous salary for doing little to nothing and can vote themselves a raise at any time. All essential life support expenses are free to them because they made those laws. They are above the law, Congress has the biggest percentage of criminals, tax cheats and morally-depraved people outside of hollywood and professional sports. They divert our money to friends and relatives as easily as you would pay the paper boy. All transportation and travel expenses are covered, no questions asked. Vacation to Puerto Rico and call it a meeting? No problem. The IRS requires you, the average citizen, to account for every friggin mile you put on your car and they decide what you've spent on business. Business meals? Sorry, you can only deduct half of what you really paid. Do you want these people to have the final word in your healthcare? Neither do I so this next election is more than an election, it is a matter of life and death and we should choose accordingly or prepare to lay down our lives to ensure that we have honest, legal government from now on. If we do not, our ancestors will never forgive us for blowing it while we still had the ability to change it.

I live in Buffalo, NY...we have 4 bridges in the area connecting to Canada .... I met 2 Border Patrol agents on separate occasions in the past few years and I asked them " Do you know how many Canadians come over here every week for medical treatment? "...without hesitation both replied with the same answer " We estimate about 3000/week." ...!!!! So...IF Canadian Health Care is soooo good...then why are people with "Free" health care going to a foreign country and PAYING for around 150,000 medical visits /year...??? ( I'm guessing Det-riot and other border towns have similar stats)

The way for the Progressives/Democrats to win is for the good people of the United States to believe the MSM and not vote. Yes, pray and vote! Pray that the RNC will recruit and run solid Conservative candidates. Pray that P/Ds actual hatred of us "deplorables" becomes manifestly obvious to the point that the citizens of this country turn out to vote them out of office. If not, the P/Ds will turn this country into Venezuela.

I rarely watch cable news anymore. It's all hysteria, all the time. CNN: "We are destroying the planet." MSNBC: "The middle class is disappearing!" President Donald Trump says drug trafficking "is worse than ever!" I'm glad my favorite magazine, Reason, cuts through the gloom and tells us the truth: There is less war and more food. We live healthier and longer lives. HIV will soon be history. We are increasingly free to be whoever we are and love whom we want. Even work has become more pleasant. It's a surprising message, since most journalists tell us everything's terrible.

A majority of Britons back the 2016 EU referendum result being respected and Brexit being delivered, whilst a plurality want the Conservatives to agree an election pact with Nigel Farage’s party to secure a strong parliamentary majority for a no deal exit. More than half, 54 per cent, of Britons agree that the referendum result should be respected, while just 25 per cent disagreed, according to a ComRes poll reported in The Telegraph. Further, more than one-third (35 per cent) of those that voted Remain in the referendum also now want Brexit to be delivered.

Speaking to the BBC on Thursday morning, Mr Farage, who has made similar offers before, said “at some point, he’s going to need to [talk to me]… because he’s made this decision that he has to deliver Brexit, he’s sacked 21 of his MPs who are essentially Remainers.

That also bears on the matters I would like to discuss with you today: civics and civility. Each serves a vital role in sustaining our republic, a nation established on the idea that the government exists to serve the people—not the other way around. In a time when despots ruled much of the world, our founders chose to believe that the people could govern themselves prudently, without destroying the civil liberties their ancestors had won, and without subjecting political minorities to arbitrary power. It was a revolutionary idea. So much so that when the Constitutional Convention proposed ordaining the Constitution in the name of “We the People,” Patrick Henry objected.

Be careful what you wish for. Democrats looking for ways to attack Donald Trump have been licking their chops at the prospect of a James Mattis tell-all memoir. Unfortunately for them, Mattis has indeed written such a book, but it tells all about Mattis’ observations of their front runner, Joe Biden, and his former boss Barack Obama. The Washington Examiner got a sneak peek of Mattis’ new memoir Call Sign Chaos, and it’s not pretty. While Mattis warned of the risks of a sudden withdrawal in 2011, Biden refused to listen:

Mayor Bill de Blasio has aggressively pushed a bike-friendly agenda, adding about 100 miles of dedicated lanes for cyclists amid a spike in rider collisions, but he’s done little to address the danger that bikers themselves pose. Since 2011, bicyclists have injured more than 2,250 pedestrians — including at least seven who died — according to stats from the city Department of Transportation and published reports. Injuries are up 12 percent this year, rising to 127 through June 30 from 113 over the same period in 2018, the NYPD says.

Almost imperceptibly, as political discourse continues to be a discordant contest between haters and admirers of President Trump with no journalistic distinction between comment and reporting, there has been substantial progress toward an improved strategic environment for the United States and the West generally. Journalists in general and the American press in particular have never been especially adept at separating good causes from grand strategy. Even venerated commentators such as Walter Lippmann and Edward R. Murrow, let alone Walter Cronkite, tended not to see geopolitical questions outside their apparent moral effects.

With dirt, they can weigh hundreds of pounds. The makeshift planter boxes are Peter Mozgo’s creations — roughly 140 of them lined up on the sidewalk to prevent homeless people from pitching tents outside his business. Mozgo acquires the boxes from a Bell Gardens company that imports ginger, paints them firetruck red, pays $120 per cubic yard for dirt and then uses a $900 trailer to haul it all back to his neighborhood on the south end of downtown Los Angeles. Like many L.A. residents and business owners, the 49-year-old says he is frustrated by the growing homelessness crisis — and the city’s often uneven response to it.

Did she do that for publicity or was her Trump derangement too deeply entrenched? Stomping on the American flag even accidentally during the World Cup celebration was more proof of her unworthiness to represent our great country.

NEW YORK —Sen.

Warren has long faced doubts from some Democratic leaders and voters who wonder if she would be able to defeat President Trump, because of her outspoken liberal message and voters’ possible reluctance to embrace a woman as president. Monday’s speech, and the big crowd it attracted, was in part an attempt to rebut such doubts

One video was taken in 2015 off the East Coast by a F/A-18F fighter jet using the aircraft's onboard Raytheon AN/ASQ-228 Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) Pod.
